Using node.js in ionic


#1

Hi Ionic Folks,
I’m developing kind of a scoreboard app. So i wanted to update the scores instantly .
Few guys suggested to go with nodeJS. Does Ionic support nodejs and is there any samples available in codepen

Any help and suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Jana

NodeJS runs on the server. Ionic is a client framework. As such, Ionic doesn’t ‘support’ it any more or less than consuming data from any other server technology. That being said, if you are a javascript dev node will be very attractive to you. Many of the tools we use these days are actually node modules (bower, gulp, grunt, etc).
If it helps, think of Ionic as the topmost layer of your stack.
If that doesn’t make sense, read everything you can get your hands on about node and angular.
